Pre­viewed at the Toronto film fes­ti­val, Mia Hansen– Løve’s Eden de­scribes the wild nights of the 90s and the emer­gence of the French Touch elec­tronic mu­sic scene. The ac­tion is seen through the eyes of a young DJ, Paul, who is com­pletely im­mersed in the scene. The di­rec­tor found her in­spi­ra­tion in the ca­reer of her brother, DJ Sven Hansen–Løve, who pi­o­neered rave par­ties in France and or­gan­ised Cheers evenings with his part­ner Greg Gau­thier, then Re­spect evenings at the Queen club in Paris. “The film is in two parts: the golden age and the dis­cov­ery of the mu­sic, and the first par­ties, the road to suc­cess; then the dis­en­chant­ment and the need to bounce back. The years de­picted in the film are our par­adise lost”, Sven Hansen–Løve said re­cently, de­scrib­ing the dif­fi­cul­ties of shoot­ing many of the scenes in a club with hun­dreds of ex­tras. Among the ac­tors in the cast are Laura Smet, Vincent La­coste, Vincent Ma­caigne, Gol­shifteh Farahani and Greta Ger­wig. Re­leased 19th Novem­ber 2014.
